What is it
This huge version of the loveable Despicable Me character stands two feet tall and is controlled by an easy-to-use handset. Your giant inflatable Minion can be moved in all directions and will even perform 360 degree spins at the touch of a button. The radio control unit is detachable so it can be used as an inflatable toy, and is interchangeable with other characters in the ‘Pump ‘n Play’ range if you want to mix it up a bit!
An Ideal gift for budding villains aged three and up. Please note: your radio-controlled Minion operates at 27Mhz. He also requires 1 x 9V battery for the handset and 4 x AA batteries for the drive unit, which are not included.

What our experts think
There was lots of laughter with the RC Inflatable Minion! Children loved the familiar character, and this was a great springboard for their imaginations. It was lovely to see the children getting really inventive and creating their own games using the Minion – ‘Stuck in the Minion mud’, setting up their own obstacles and playing Hide and Seek. They had loads of fun while getting physically active!
The RC Inflatable Minion was easy for children to control, and the clever design meant that when it fell over, it simply bounced back up again.
It would be even better if...
The motor/wheels were quite noisy.
